The first thing that comes to mind when I think of this hotel, is all the doors! From the lobby to our hotel room, we had to go through 7 fire safety doors. Quite memorable, but a little exhausting. Our room was very small, but after making use of the armoire, we were able to fit comfortably. Our room had a large door that opened onto a shared balcony which I loved leaving open at night as it got a bit too heated in the room for our liking. The door had a chain, so we felt quite safe. The bathroom was decently sized, but the shower/tub is raised a bit so might be hard for elderly folk to get in and out. Toiletries were provided.
The wifi system was a bit different. We stayed here three nights and had to pick up new wifi codes from the front desk everyday. The staff was always friendly so not a big deal.
The location of the hotel is not too shabby, right near the Earls Court metro station and not too far from the Gloucester stop where we got on the Hop on/off bus. There was a nice little pub just on the corner of the street that served decent fish and chips. There was also a small food market, great for grabbing breakfast on the go, and also a drugstore where you can find all the essentials.
Although by no means a fancy hotel, we still enjoyed ourselves and found the hotel to be quite cozy. When considering price + location on a budget, it's hard to beat. less
